ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown
Despite it almost being summer, this weekend was a bit . . . nippy. While performing at a concert in Istanbul, 53-year-old Madonna flashed her bare breast at the audience for no apparent reason. In addition, topless photos of Jersey Shore's Snooki and Sports Illustrated cover model Kate Upton were leaked over the weekend. The photos of Snooki were taken before the pint-sized reality star got pregnant. Admitting the photos were real, Snooki's rep said, "It's a shame someone decided to leak them for obvious personal gain." Upton's leaked photos were snapped during her S.I. photo shoot. It's unclear who took the candid photos showing Upton (or an impersonator) topless while holding a nearly see-through floating tube.
Now something for the ladies: This new topless photo of Joey Lawrence might make you say "Whoa!" The former Blossom star just signed a three-week deal to join the popular Chippendales in Las Vegas. And if that's not enough, check out a ripped 48-year-old shirtless Dermot Mulroney going for a jog in Santa Monica.
The fallout continues for Lindsay Lohan after her pretty serious car wreck on Friday. While neither Lohan, her passenger, or the driver of the semi truck she rear-ended were hurt, Lohan is suffering from accusations that her camp tried to bribe the truck driver. The truck driver, James (TMZ is not revealing his last name), has since lawyered up. Of course, none of this is Lohan's fault. At first, she tried to blame the accident on James, saying he cut her off. Then she changed her story, saying the brakes on the Porsche failed. And as far as the truck driver's story, Lohan is calling him a liar.
Matthew McConaughey finally wed Camila Alves. The two have been dating since 2006 and have two children together, Levi, 4, and Vida, 2. They married during a three-day extravaganza in Austin. Reese Witherspoon, Jim Toth, John Cougar Mellencamp, Meg Ryan, and Woody Harrelson were among the attendees at the wedding. McConaughey wore a three-piece black tuxedo by Dolce & Gabanna and Alves, whose last name is now McConaughey, wore a gown by a Brazilian designer.
Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts announced she has been diagnosed with the rare blood and bone marrow disorder MDS and will have to undergo a bone marrow transplant. Roberts said the disease is a complication from the treatment she received to beat breast cancer in 2007. "I'm going to beat this," she said on air.
In Jersey Shore news, Deena Cortese was arrested for disorderly conduct by Seaside police after blocking traffic while dancing in the middle of the street, and the rest of the cast was involved in a bar brawl that left JWoww in crutches. Posted 06.11.12 by Chris

Open Road Films has announced that director Joe Carnahan's latest movie, The Grey, will finally be released on January 27, 2012. The Grey is part of the inaugural slate of movies for the distribution company.
The action-packed survival thriller reunites Carnahan with his The A-Team star Liam Neeson, and may open in New York and Los Angeles before the end of the year to allow for a possible Oscar campaign for Neeson's performance. Ironically, Neeson's role was originally cast with Bradley Cooper, but after Cooper dropped out, Neeson took over. Bummer for Bradley, but the synopsis does sound like the actors had to withstand a great deal of cold weather (which makes it harder to keep your abs tanned). synopsis and cast for The Grey >> Posted 08.11.11 by Ryan
Jeremy Piven has dropped out of Igor, The Weinstein Company's animated monster movie about a hunchbacked lab assistant who plots to win the annual Evil Science Fair.
He was to join John Cusack, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Jennifer Coolidge, Arsenio Hall, Jay Leno, Molly Shannon and Sean Hayes, all of whom are lending their voices to the project. In his place, hysterical British transvestite comic Eddie Izzard (My Super Ex-Girlfriend, The Riches) will be taking over the role of Igor's nemesis, the mad scientist Schaudenfreude, and we can't think of a better choice.
Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding, Georgia Rule) will be joining Greg Kinnear in Flash of Genius, a drama about a man whose invention of the intermittent windshield wiper was stolen by the Detroit automakers. The movie, which is currently filming in Toronto, is the feature writing/directing debut of producer Marc Abraham (The Family Man, Children of Men).
Another casting score for The Incredible Hulk: talented character actor Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?, The Good Girl) will play Hulk antagonist Samuel Sterns, aka The Leader.
...And sultry Gael Garcia Bernal will be starring in Pedro Paramo, a Spanish film adapted from Juan Rulfo's landmark 1955 Latin American novel about a journey to a dustbowl ghost village. It will be directed by Mateo Gil (Vanilla Sky) and have art and makeup direction from the same team that won Oscars for Pan's Labyrinth.
